CK3 Mobile Computer User’s Manual 3


Chapter 1 — Using the Computer

Using the Battery


The CK3 uses an AB17 standard or AB18 extended battery as its main
power source. The standard battery has a 7.4 Watt hour capacity, and
the extended battery has a 18.8 Watt hour capacity. Several factors
determine the life of your battery, such as extreme temperatures,
input devices, and your usage.
You must fully charge the battery before you can use the CK3. When
you change the battery, an internal super capacitor maintains your
status, memory, and real-time clock for approximately 10 minutes.
The battery used in this device may present a fire or chemical
burn hazard if it is mistreated. Do not disassemble it, heat it
above 100°C (212°F) or incinerate it. Dispose of used batteries
promptly. Keep away from children.

If you fail to replace the low battery immediately, you may lose
important data or applications.

Note: If the CK3 is not using external power and you remove the
battery pack, the CK3 goes into Suspend mode.

For replacement batteries, contact your Intermec representative.

Charging the Battery


Make sure you fully charge the AB17 or AB18 battery before you use
your CK3. You can charge the battery before or after you install it in
the CK3. A fully discharged battery charges in approximately 4 (AB17)
to 7 (AB18) hours.
To charge the battery
• Insert the battery into the battery bay of the AD20 single dock, or
insert up to four batteries into the AC20 quad battery charger.
Or,
• Install the battery in the CK3 and insert the CK3 into the AD20
single dock, AD21 Ethernet multidock, AD22 charge-only
multidock, AE33 vehicle battery adapter, or AV10 vehicle dock.

4 CK3 Mobile Computer User’s Manual


Chapter 1 — Using the Computer

Use the next table to understand how long it takes to charge your
batteries in each of the CK3 charger or dock accessories.

Charging Times for CK3 Batteries

AD20 single dock up to 4 hours up to 6 to 7 hours
AD21 Ethernet multidock up to 4 hours up to 7 hours
AD22 charge-only multidock up to 4 hours up to 7 hours
AE33 vehicle battery adapter up to 4 hours up to 7 hours
AV10 vehicle dock up to 4 hours up to 7 hours

Removing and Installing the Battery


To maximize the time allowed to replace the main battery pack, put
the CK3 in suspend mode before removing the battery pack.
To remove and install the battery
1 Press and hold for about 2 seconds. When you release , the
CK3 goes into suspend mode.
2 If necessary, disconnect the handstrap from the bottom of the
CK3.
3 Press the battery release tab toward the battery until the battery
releases, and then lift it away from the CK3.
4 Insert the battery into the CK3, and press down on the battery
until it clicks into place.

Maximizing Battery Life


Batteries are chemical devices. If the batteries are left sitting on a shelf
for long periods of time outside the CK3, the batteries slowly
discharge, eventually to zero if left uncharged. The battery chemistry
resists normal degradation if you store the battery in a charger as
opposed to leaving the battery in a discharged state. See the following
table for tips to maximize the life of your battery.

Managing the CK3 Using SmartSystems


Foundation
Intermec's SmartSystems™ Foundation is a software platform that
lets you manage all of your SmartSystems-enabled devices, including
the CK3, simultaneously from a central server. The SmartSystems
console displays all SmartSystems-enabled computers and peripherals
in your network.
Through the console, you can:
• drag-and-drop configuration bundles, operating system updates,
and firmware upgrades to multiple computers.
• save configuration settings from a single device and deploy those
settings to many devices simultaneously.
• remotely change settings on SmartSystems-enabled computers
and peripherals.
The SmartSystems console can report on asset locations and battery
status, making it easier to manage your mobile devices.
With an AutoDeploy license, SmartSystems can automatically push
software, configuration settings, and other files to connected CK3s.
The license also enables Scan-to-Connect, which makes connecting

Developing and Installing Applications

This chapter contains guidelines for developing applications


for the CK3 and contains these sections:
• Developing Applications for the CK3
• Installing Applications on the CK3
• Freeing Up Virtual Memory for Applications
• Launching an Application Automatically
• Upgrading the System Software

Chapter 3 — Developing and Installing Applications

Developing Applications for the CK3


Use the Intermec Resource Kits to develop applications to run on the
CK3. The Resource Kits are a library of C++, .NET, Java, and web
components grouped by functionality that you can use to create
applications for the computer. The Resource Kits are part of the
Intermec Developer Library (IDL), and can be downloaded from the
Intermec web site at www.intermec.com/idl.
For more information, see the Intermec Developer Library Resource
Kit Developer’s Guide.

Packaging Your Application


For very simple applications, the executable file may be the only file
you need to deploy. More typically, you will have a set of files to
install.
Intermec recommends using .cab files to install your applications.
The CK3 uses standard Windows Mobile .cab files and will install
third-party .cab files.

Choosing a Target Location


You can have your .cab file place your application in any of these
memory locations on the CK3:
• The ObjectStore.
• The optional microSD card. Depending on available disk space,
you may want to consider installing your application files on the
microSD card. Using a card creates the Storage Card folder on the
CK3.
• The non-volatile Flash File Store. Applications and data in the
Flash File Store will persist through a clean boot.
Note: The Flash File Store may be erased if you reflash the image.

54 CK3 Mobile Computer User’s Manual


Chapter 3 — Developing and Installing Applications

Installing Applications on the CK3


You can install applications on your CK3 by using:
• SmartSystems Foundation.
• Microsoft ActiveSync.
• a microSD card.
• the CK3 FTP server.
For more information on installing applications, see the Intermec
Developer Library Resource Kit Developer’s Guide.

Installing Applications Using SmartSystems Foundation


You can use the SmartSystems console to drag-and-drop Intermec
applications onto your CK3. The console is part of SmartSystems
Foundation. For more information, see “Managing the CK3 Using
SmartSystems Foundation” on page 28.
To use SmartSystems console to install an application
1 Download your application file from the Intermec web site and
unzip it on your desktop PC.
2 Double-click the application file to install it. The application file
should appear in the Software Vault.
3 From the SmartSystems console in the Software Vault, drag-and-
drop the application onto each CK3 in your network, or drop the
application on a group of CK3s contained in a folder.
You can also use SmartSystems Scan-to-Connect to connect the CK3
to your network and install software. For more information, see the
SmartSystems Foundation console online Help.

Installing Applications Using Microsoft ActiveSync


When you only have a few computers to update with applications, you
can copy files using Microsoft ActiveSync.
This procedure assumes that Microsoft ActiveSync is installed on
your PC and is up and running. For more information on installing
and using ActiveSync, see “Connecting to a PC” on page 28.

CK3 Mobile Computer User’s Manual 55


Chapter 3 — Developing and Installing Applications

To install an application on the computer using ActiveSync


1 Connect to the CK3 via ActiveSync. For help, see “Connecting to
a PC” on page 28.
2 Copy the .cab files from your development PC to the CK3.
3 Warm boot or cold boot the CK3.
4 After the boot process is finished, browse to the .cab files and tap
the files to install them.

Installing Applications Using a Storage Card


For information on installing the microSD card in the CK3, see
“Using a microSD Card” on page 23.
To install applications using the storage card
1 Copy your application file to the microSD card.
2 Install the microSD card in the CK3.
3 On your CK3, browse to the Storage Card folder and run your
application.

Installing Applications Using the FTP Server


The CK3 has a built-in FTP server that connects to a network through
Ethernet, 802.11, or WAN (Wireless Access Network). You can use the
server to transfer your application file to the computer. Because you
can create FTP scripts to automate the process of copying files to the
computer, this option is useful when you need to send files to a large
number of computers.
The easiest way to manage the FTP server is to enable the FTP menu
within iConnect.
To enable the FTP menu
• Create this DWORD registry key and set it to a value of 1:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\iConnect2\IConnect\Settings\ShowFTPMenu

The iFTP menu is available the next time you start iConnect.
To manage the state of the FTP server
• Modify these existing registry keys:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\iConnect2\IConnect\Settings\FtpAutoStart

56 CK3 Mobile Computer User’s Manual


Chapter 3 — Developing and Installing Applications

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\iConnect2\IConnect\Settings\FtpHeartbeat

where 1 = enable and 0 = disable.

Freeing Up Virtual Memory for Applications


You can use the InstallSelect application to free up virtual memory
and create more space to load and run custom applications.
Note: InstallSelect is designed for use only by administrators,
developers, integrators, or Intermec service representatives. Do not
run InstallSelect while using any other applications.

When you free up virtual memory, you reduce the amount of virtual
memory used by portions of the SmartSystems Platform Bundle
(SSPB) by removing value-added software features. Be sure to back up
any related files that you want before you use the InstallSelect
application. For more information on SSPB, see “Upgrading the
System Software” on page 60.
Removing software features may result in loss of computer
functionality or the ability to manage device settings. Contact
your Intermec service representative for information about each
software feature before making changes.

To free up virtual memory


1 Go to Start > Programs > File Explorer.
2 Tap the arrow next to My Documents and select My Device.
3 Tap the Windows folder and scroll down to find InstallSelect.
4 Tap InstallSelect. The Install Select application starts and
displays a Caution message box.
5 Tap OK to close the box.

Launching an Application Automatically


There are two ways to automatically launch your application when
you perform a reset on the computer:
• Make sure your .cab file places a shortcut to your application in
the \Windows\StartUp folder.
• Configure AutoRun.exe to launch your application.
AutoRun.exe automates operations on your CK3. You can configure
AutoRun.exe through the AutoRun data file (AutoRun.dat). For
compatibility with other Intermec computers, you can place a copy of
AutoRun.exe in the same folder as your AutoRun.dat file.
To create and install the AutoRun.dat file on your computer

Cold Booting the CK3


If the CK3 or application is locked up and does not respond to a warm
boot, follow this procedure to perform a cold boot.
Performing a cold boot may result in data loss. When you
cold boot the CK3, cached disk data may not be saved, so
transactional data may be lost.

CK3 Mobile Computer User’s Manual 77


Chapter 4 — Troubleshooting and Maintaining the CK3

To cold boot your CK3


1 Press and hold for about 2 seconds to suspend the CK3.
2 Remove the battery.
3 Use the stylus to press the reset button in the battery
compartment of the CK3.

Reset button

Do not use force or a sharp object when pressing the reset


button. You may damage the reset button.

4 Replace the battery.

Clean Booting the CK3


If the CK3 does not warm boot or cold boot, you may need to perform
a clean boot. When you clean boot the CK3, the CK3 only loads files
and applications that are absolutely required by the operating system.
Perform a clean boot to get the CK3 up and running so that you can
run diagnostic tests to troubleshoot the normal boot process.
The clean boot process erases the CK3 memory, including all
applications and data files in the object store. To preserve
applications through a clean boot, store them in the Flash File
Store. For more information, see “Installing Applications on the
CK3” on page 55.
